“…You must observe my Sabbaths. This will be a sign between me and you for the generations to come, so you may know that I am the LORD, who makes you holy.”
Exodus 31:18

“Baby face, you got the cutest little baby face. Lalalalala…” Okay, that’s all I know of the happy little song, but I love it, don’t you? It always brings a smile to my face because there really is nothing cuter than a baby’s face.

Our family is already screaming, “Freeze!” to our 3-month old grandson. He’s at the stage when there is much to smile about for when he smiles—adults do too. It is for this reason we request he freeze so as not to grow another day away from innocence. Adults know babies don’t stay babies for long…for only yesterday I was a baby, and only yesterday so were my babies.

Transformation is inevitable. We cannot decide to just stay in a protective womb. We must be born in order to discover a new world; physically, intellectually, and spiritually. Therefore, the question changes from why transform but how will we transform?

My husband often pops the question, “So, what do you want to be when you grow up?” His question and today’s Scripture challenges us to grow up and recognize there must be a time set aside for the Lord. Your personal choice is a sign to others, big and small, that seeking His holiness is important enough to place everything else aside as you place Him first.

Are you willing to sacrifice a designated time just for God? If so, when? And how would this one choice influence your transformation for other generations to come?
